The following examples of wrist pain aim to give you an idea of some common conditions. Our expert clinicians will assess your wrist condition and discuss the best treatment options with you.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a relatively common condition that causes pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and fingers. This is caused by compression of the nerve in the wrist and symptoms start off gradually being worst at night. Common symptoms include pain in the wrist, hand and fingers.Tingling and numbness may also be experienced.
A contracture is the shortening of muscles, tendons or other connective tissue which can cause a loss of potential extension in the affected joint areas. A wrist contracture may be caused by scar tissue forming adhesions in & around the joint. This may lead to restricted movement and limited extension of the wrist.
The carpometacarpal (CMC) joint is at the base of the thumb, where the thumb attaches to the hand. Like arthritis which can affect other areas of the body, pain is experienced when the cartilage wears away and the bone rubs against bone. This is more common in women than men and by age 80 up to 80% of women are affected.
Overuse injuries in the elbow and forearm are most common in racquet sports. The tendons, ligaments and muscles can be damaged over time by repetitive use when there hasn’t been enough time to recover.
